Exciting things are happening in Jefferson County 4-H! We are looking forward to Tri County 4-H camp which will be held at Salt Creek Retreat, Ringling, June 19-21, 2019. We have a total 20 Jefferson County 4-H members registered and ready to go! We will be holding summer workshops to help prepare for the Jefferson County Free Fair which is scheduled for Wednesday, September 4 – Saturday, September 7. Two graduating Seniors were presented with Joachim 4-H Awards; next week I will share pictures and an article so you can see who are our graduating seniors. To be eligible, they had to have been actively enrolled and active in 4-H during their high school career and submit a statement explaining how many years they were enrolled in 4-H, what 4-H taught them, how they plan to use what they learned and why others should join 4-H.

4-H offers many opportunities for members to grow and prepare for their future – and there are scholarship and awards available to assist them with their post high school further education opportunities.

Come join us and help “Make the Best Better!”
